Описание:

Winner of the 2007 Marshall Shulman Prize

The 1956 Hungarian revolution, and its suppression by the U.S.S.R., was a key event in the cold war, demonstrating deep dissatisfaction with both the communist system and old-fashioned Soviet imperialism. But now, fifty years later, the simplicity of this David and Goliath story should be revisited, according to Charles Gatis new history of the revolt.

Denying neither Hungarian heroism nor Soviet brutality, Failed Illusions nevertheless modifies our picture of what happened. Imre Nagy, a reform communist who headed the revolutionary government and turned into a genuine patriot, could not rise to the occasion by steering a realistic course between his peoples demands and Soviet geopolitical and ideological interests. The United States was all talk, no action, while Radio Free Europe simultaneously backed the insurgents unrealizable demands and opposed Nagy. In the end, the Soviet Union followed its imperial impulse instead of seeking a political solution to the crisis in the spirit of de-Stalinization.

Failed Illusions is based on extensive archival research, including the CIAs operational files, and hundreds of interviews with participants in Budapest, Moscow, and Washington. Personal observations by the author, a young reporter in Budapest in 1956, bring the tragic story vividly to life.

Описание: The failure of economists to anticipate the global financial crisis and mitigate the impact of the ensuing recession has spurred a public outcry. Economists are under fire, but questions concerning exactly how to redeem the discipline remain unanswered. In this provocative book, renowned economist Meghnad Desai investigates the evolution of economics and maps its trajectory against the occurrence of major political events to provide a definitive answer.
Desai underscores the contribution of hubris to economists calamitous lack of foresight, and he makes a persuasive case for the profession to re-engage with the history of economic thought. He dismisses the notion that one over-arching paradigm can resolve all economic eventualities while urging that an array of already-available theories and approaches be considered anew for the insights they may provide toward preventing future economic catastrophes. With an accessible style and keen common sense, Desai offers a fresh perspective on some of the most important economic issues of our time.

The Museum of Illusions: Optical Tricks in Art

Описание: The art of optical illusion has been an integral part of painting since antiquity when it was used as a yardstick by which to judge an artist's level of mastery. In the centuries that followed - and continuing through contemporary times - artists from van Eyck to Gerhard Richter have delighted in "tricking the eye." That practice has extended to outdoor spaces with the likes of Banksy and Cayetano Ferrer. This book presents a fascinating overview of the different methods of illusion practiced by artists over hundreds of years. Organized into five chapters - Optical Illusions, Distortions and Hidden Images, De-Figurations, Questioning Perception, and Overstepping Reality - it brings together artists from various time periods and disciplines. Dozens of illustrated examples offer intriguing comparisons of works by Magritte and Li Wei, Cindy Sherman and Giuseppe Arcimboldo, Michelangelo and Duane Hanson, and many more. Readers will come away with an understanding of how artists perceive our world and how their reflections and distortions are at once confusing and enlightening.

It`s Chinmi against the deadly Steiner, China against the foreign devils, Kung Fu against the mysterious fighting art of Bok Sing. Written in cartoon style, this book reads from back to front. Originally published in 1984, Suzi Gablik`s vivid description of how the heroic idealism of 20th century art had degenerated into a despiritualized marketplace of styles, forms and attitudes challenged and provoked a multitude of readers.
